Just looking at the picture of the JBL driver. I'm sure you know, but I would point out that the poles on the JBL drivers are reversed, and red is negative.
I have a pair of 2482s with the paint knocked off the back just like yours. Did you ever try to remove the bug screen? I know people hate that subject, but man that screen is like a sieve from the 1940s. It looks like it would require a big spanner key to unscrew the phase plug.
Big speakers and little amps blew my mind!
and the phase was indeed reversed when that photo was taken, I am chagrined to admit.
Long story -- bottom line: at the advice of a hifi sage of my ken, I bought myself a Cricket. It's an invaluable tool for all issues of phase!
all the best,
I can only comment on those horn systems that I have been exposed to.
I would CERTAINLY hope there is a horn speaker system I could live with. I'd just love to hear such a thing.
David S, if you ever get the chance to hear TomServo's (a.k.a. Tom Danley) synergy horn designs, take it. Unfortunately Danley Labs doesn't design for or market to the consumer market, so it would likely have to be a DIY design based on the idea or someone (not many out there) who is using the huge pro audio horns in a house. Doesn't sound like a horn, or like a speaker much either.

and I do ;-)
De gustibus non est disputandum, of course.
